In fact, instead of forgetting about it I want to encourage everyone to keep their creative groove on. I want to have a class where inspiration is provided five days a week – and the pressure to complete assignments is non-existent.
I want to make a fun camp type environment with fun, prizes, and lots of art time just for my favorite people on earth – my fellow scrapbookers. So guess what? It’s called Camp Scrap and it’s starting June 24th. You can read all about it here and get more details. If you’re thinking about class but aren’t sure here’s a few things you might want to know about me and this class:
I work almost exclusively with 4” x 6” photos, and I only tell my real stories. I only use black and white photos if I have them printed already (due to loving a photo in B&W), I don’t stage photo shoots. What you see is my 100% real life scrapbook layouts.
My classes are interactive, and I encourage you to seek me out. I’m not just handing you lessons here – I make time every week to comment in gallery, interact on board, and have chats now and then too.
This is the first ever class I’ve offered (or heck, even seen it offered!) where I will have skype “instructor hours” where you can call me here in the studio (it’s free!) and video chat with me. One on one. Scrapbooker to scrapbooker.
If I had to sum up Camp Scrap I’d have to say it’s FUN. It’s about scrapbooking your memories, working from a happy place, being inspired, and not worrying over doing a specific assignment or anything – unless that’s fun to you.
Today, in honor of camp I’d like to share a layout sketch idea of mine that has been a favorite the last few weeks (all you need are a few scraps + two 4” x 6” photos!).
This has become my #1 go-to layout lately! I mean – just a few scraps of ribbon or patterned paper or border stickers and I’m good to go! Bonus on the space for journaling and there is SO much room to mix it up and interpret this page.
I really love that I can get a good amount of story on the page without sacrificing style. By using a sheet of neutral cardstock and skipping any real patterned paper I saved time, supplies, and created an insta-base for my journaling as well.
Supplies: The Girls’ Paperie ribbon, clock die cut, and sticker; Pink Paislee letter stickers; October Afternoon photo corner; Catslife Press stamp; Prima rhinestone and flower; American Crafts pen
If you try this idea I hope you’ll share, and I also hope to see you in camp! If you’d like to see more of my work or get to know more about me you can visit me at www.mayflaum.com.
